Facebook is currently working on a new video app aimed at recapturing the attention of teens who switched to the hugely popular app TikTok. In the new app, users will be able to record and share videos of themselves as they lip sync or dance to popular songs, according to TechCrunch.
The new video app is also aimed at Musical.ly, which also rose in popularity thanks to teens. The app with 60 million monthly users was bought by Chinese tech giant ByteDance for about $1 billion and then added to the TikTok app, which also belonged to ByteDance.
“It’s basically TikTok/Musically. It’s full-screen, built for teens, fun and funny and focused on creation,” a source told TechCrunch. “A lot of what they’re doing is just trying to be cool.”
